James Goddard and the Sneering Elite

by Chauncey Tinker – 16 Jan 2019

Even most of those few politicians and commentators who have spoken out in defence of James Goddard in the wake of his recent arrest have invariably felt the need to show their disdain for his protests. Take Brendan O’Neill’s article at spiked-online for example:

Parliament has turned against the people


Forget the seven or eight crude-mouthed blokes outside parliament who have been shouting silly insults at Tory MP Anna Soubry, Guardian columnist Owen Jones and various Sky reporters. Those imbeciles pose precisely zero threat to freedom and democracy in the UK.

an infinitesimally small number of unemployable blowhards rocked up for a couple of days to chant ‘Soubry is a Nazi’ and call Owen Jones a tampon

While I do applaud O’Neill’s efforts in defence of freedom of speech and the democratic vote to leave the EU, by lacing his own article with silly insults he is perhaps guilty of a little hypocrisy himself. Does he know that Mr. Goddard and the other protestors have never been gainfully employed or is he just making this up?

In another example, David Davies MP tweeted:

Hi Anna sorry for what happened to you. Totally unacceptable. But do you know that pro-brexit supporters are regularly subjected to abusive tirades like this from your “brave and wonderful” friend?? pic.twitter.com/XeVvZzH318

He is calling out Soubry’s hypocrisy here but at the same time he says that Mr. Goddard’s behaviour was “totally unacceptable”, which could easily be seen as giving the green light for Mr. Goddard’s subsequent arrest. I find Mr. Goddard’s arrest totally unacceptable myself, from all I have seen of the incidents involving Soubry they were well within the bounds of peaceful protest. Mainstream media journalists have frequently been guilty of similar uninvited “interceptions” (and very often they have gone on to print lies and edit the responses they provoke to suit their narrative). If Davies is really condoning the arrest then he should also be calling for the arrest of the “brave and wonderful friend” in the above clip, and also for the arrest of many of our “most outstanding” journalists as well.

Are these protests really so crude, so “unacceptable”, or do they have some value that our condescending elite are failing to appreciate? Here I will make the case that the protests are in fact of great value and argue that they raise a number of very important questions about the state of our parliamentary democracy today.


Our politicians live in a world apart from the rest of us. They visit radio and television studios where hostility towards the Leave position is ever present. They make speeches in the House of Commons where a large majority wanted to stay in the EU, they mingle with their fellow Remoaners in the parliament bars (some more than others), and just next door in the House of Lords the same pro-EU atmosphere prevails. Somehow the voice of the ordinary people needs to get through to these politicians, someone needs to explain to them that we do actually care about the result of the referendum, and we do care about it a lot. Otherwise, they will continue delaying and prevaricating and trying to keep us in the EU either effectively or literally.

Of course the greatest offence caused in the Anne Sourbry incidents was by the use of the word “traitor”. It was first used by another protestor who prefixed the word with a swear word, but when she called for the help of a policeman to protect her from these stinging insults Mr Goddard joined in:

JG: So why are you calling for a second vote Anne? The people have already had their vote. We chose to leave two years ago. You are being undemocratic. You are going against the will of the people.

AS (to the policeman): One of these protestors just called me a f***ing traitor!

JG: You are a traitor.

Clearly she thought this was sufficient grounds for the arrest of Mr. Goddard and the other protestor. However, since Soubry is indeed trying to go against the will of the people she is indeed guilty of a betrayal of the British people, who voted to leave the EU. She is also guilty of a betrayal of her position as an elected representative in a constituency that voted to leave the EU. She is also guilty of a betrayal of her own party, the Conservative Party, which pledged to honour the result of the referendum.

A quote from a book by Taylor Caldwell about Cicero springs to mind:

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

(Note the quote above is apparently actually an invention in Caldwell’s book A Pillar of Iron (1965), and not a literal quotation from any of Cicero’s works.)


Those who have watched the footage closely will have noticed that the protestors only began to hurl the word “Nazi” at Soubry after she had accused them of belonging to the English Defence League. They merely amplified her own insult and threw it right back at her. Not so much speaking truth to power in this instance perhaps as holding up a mirror to the powerful so they can see what they really look like to the rest of us. For far too long phrases such as “far-right” and “Nazi” have been used by those in politics and the media to shut down dissent.

I would describe Soubry as a Glozi (Globalist Socialist) myself, because she is certainly no sort of nationalist, she wishes to hand over our national sovereignty to the EU. The EU clearly has a deranged plan to expand its borders not primarily by military conquest but rather by allowing unlimited mass immigration across national boundaries (inside and outside the EU) until those national boundaries have ceased to have any meaning.

The problem with this plan, apart from the fact that it will ultimately destroy the EU in any case, is that the people of Europe do not want it. To achieve their goal, the Glozis of the EU must therefore subdue the people by limiting their freedom to speak, and surely enough that is exactly what has happened to James Goddard. Of course the real objective of Mr. Goddard’s arrest is not to protect the MPs (clearly Soubry never felt threatened, she was smiling throughout the exchanges) but to silence the people. Anyone who doubts this should reflect on the fact that Mr. Goddard has also lost access to Facebook (no doubt at the instigation of our MPs).

What the Glozis have in common with the Nazis is that both believe in the ultimate wisdom of the state, and have nothing but disdain for ordinary people. A quote from the Urban Dictionary definition of Fascism:

“Nothing against the state”. Any type of questioning the government is not to be tolerated. If you do not see things our way, you are wrong. If you do not agree with the government, you cannot be allowed to live and taint the minds of the rest of the good citizens.


The Glozi elite have been chipping away at the foundation stones of our great society, at the principle of equality before the law and the right to a meaningful degree of freedom of speech. We are seeing now a repeat of similar tactics that were used against Tommy Robinson, these same tactics are being used against Mr. Goddard and his family. Targetting family members is the behaviour of gangsters not a fair justice system.

In a recent video, Mr. Goddard says that he was arrested for a racially aggravated public order offence concerning a comment he made to a Lithuanian police constable. He says that once at the station he was also arrested (but not yet even charged) for the harassment of Anna Soubry. He says he was released on bail but with these draconian bail conditions:

He is most distressed though about the treatment of his family, a number of his relatives have been targetted by the police, the details are described in the video:

Government Persecution

I will admit that I don’t know very much about Mr. Goddard, I had never heard of him before these recent incidents. In an excellent recent interview with Raheem Kassam (who has himself suffered a great many insults from the sneering elite) we can start to get an impression of his perspectives (50 minute interview):

Kassam Talks to Yellow Vest UK Organiser James Goddard

I certainly do not get the impression that our MPs have anything to fear from Mr. Goddard after listening to this interview, and I also do not get the impression that he is any sort of imbecile.


The protests have in fact accomplished three important things in my estimation:

  1. They have got the message through to the MPs that there are people in this country who feel very strongly that the result of the referendum has to be honoured, and they have done that more effectively than any amount of condescending Brendan O’Neill articles could ever possibly have accomplished – the incidents have appeared at the top of the front page even of the BBC.
  2. They have exposed the hypocrisy of the likes of Anne Sourbry who likes to call people names but immediately calls for the cops as soon as anyone does the same back to her.
  3. They have exposed the parlous state of our justice system, in particular the fact that there is clearly now one law for those who want an end to mass immigration and another for those who are happy to allow all and sundry into the country. Even the BBC had to acknowledge that there was a problem when events such as Nigel Farage’s treatment and the very aggressive posturing of those outside the Lewisham East hustings were practically ignored by the justice system, and yet these harmless and slightly comical interactions led very quickly to an arrest and further indefensible police actions.

We have all been too complacent, we have allowed an increasingly authoritarian government to erode the protections that are fundamental to a fair society. If a government chooses to undermine those protections and refuses to defend the borders of the nation then surely that government is failing in its most important functions. We must remember once again the timeless words of Pastor Niemoller “First they came for the Brexit Yellow Vest protestors … “. You know how that poem ends.

Risking arrest in today’s UK is no trivial act, especially for those who have been critical of the Islamic religion. Our prisons are now teeming with violent Muslim inmates, and our current politicians have already demonstrated a criminally reckless disregard for the safety of their citizens by placing those critical of Islam in dangerous situations in this so-called “justice” system. Of course these attempts at censorship will backfire, they will merely strengthen the resolve of brave patriots to resist our rotten government. With each injustice another hero (not an imbecile) stands up to be counted, another legend is born.
